The C-5A airplane is a very large airplane designed to transport extremely large quantities of cargo. The design requirements include the structural capability to sustain abnormally high lateral gust loads, of recovering from an upset at limit speed even though the horizontal stabilizer is trimmed full airplane nose down, and to provide a high degree of reliability. This paper presents some of the unique design considerations made during the engineering phase of the C-5A project to optimize reliability and safety and to minimize the structural weight of the airplane.
